Air Bag suspension

Hello,
Was wondering if anyone has installed air Bag helper rear suspension bags on their F-150 Diesel? I have an equilizer hitch but there still appears to be some rear sag along with headlamp lift.
The trailer weighs around 5100 LBS. Curious to know if the bag helped you and the manufacturer of your air Bag.

Thanks John

I installed the Air Lift Load Lifter 5000 series in my 19 crew short box to help when towing a toy hauler. The camper and
load is about 7800# and these work very well. I have a buddy that put in the Firestone bags and is equally as happy.
The costs seemed similar between the two also. Dann.

Don't plug the left lane.

I have Firestone Ride-Rite air bags and they raise the rear .5" to 2.5" depending on the pressure I put in them. It's a rough ride if you have anything more than about 5 psi in them when empty, but they get rid of the sag and handle the weight better when loaded.
